The Journey to a Peaceful School – workshop

 April 27 and 28, 2006

Woodstock Centennial Elementary School, Woodstock, New Brunswick

Every school can become a place where people want to be. In this workshop we will look at some practical strategies to achieve this goal. The philosophical framework that forms the basis of this workshop is rooted in the belief that the only effective, long-term means to reduce discipline problems and improve the atmosphere of schools is to implement school-wide, proactive programs, policies and initiatives. Participants will receive a comprehensive handbook filled with practical ideas.
